Estime was Notre Dame’s most-effective offensive playmaker on Saturday vs. the Golden Bears. He carried the ball 18 times for 76 yards and 1 touchdown in the win. He also caught 3 passes for 43 yards — 1-yard off the team lead.
Griffith recorded 3 tackles in the win. He led the Notre Dame secondary to a productive day. Cal quarterback Jack Plummer completed just 16-of-37 passes for 184 yards.
Foskey was also vital to Notre Dame’s efforts defensively as he recorded 4 tackles and was credited with 1.5 sacks. As a team, the Fighting Irish recorded 6 sacks.
Notre Dame will have a tougher test in Week 4 as it travels to Chapel Hill to face an undefeated North Carolina team.
